    I cannot recommend staying there!

    The Hostel is between some kind of construction sides, which makes it very uncomfortable. It stinks horrible like piss, one time we couldn't even sleep because of it. If it's not piss, there's a strong sence of fish... If somebody in the dorm, pays extra for a.c., the put it on, which is a weird system, but then at least it doesn't smell in the room any more. The communal area is super hot and not comfortable at all and the Wi-Fi didn't work! All the Hostels on the Island are pricey, but you can get better value for your money!
    The beds are comfortable and big, everyone has there own curtain, light, plug and mirrow. There's water for free and a kettle!

    Warning: do not book here, it smells awful everywhere...spend extra and find somewhere else!!!!!!

    1. There is an overwhelming and nauseating smell of sewage that fills the entire common area to the point of triggering a severe gag reflex. The dorms face the common area so there is no hope of avoiding it. Apparently there is nothing the hostel can do to correct this and it’s been going on quite a while. 2. The common area has a see through plastic roof which effectively acts as a greenhouse making the temperature unbearable and uncomfortable as there is no a/c and no installed fans. Not a social environment and no hope of relaxing. 3. The older French owner was incredibly unprofessional, aggressive & unreasonable. He initially offered a refund for us leaving early to find another hostel (due to the smell) which seemed fair and is essentially him openly admitting there was a sewer smell issue then after a brief delay of me calculating an exchange rate/amount he then changed his mind and said I’ve caught him on a real bad day and he has big problems in life so now we will no longer be getting our money back. It was confusing, frustrating and an entirely avoidable situation which led to us not getting our money back? I can only assume the smell of sewer and obscene heat he works in on a day to day basis has slowly broken apart all that is good in his spirit & soul to the point where there is just an angry & bitter individual. I almost felt sorry for him as he came across such a sad & hopeless character which unsurprisingly creates an entirely awful customer service experience for your stay. If you choose to stay here....good luck!
    Nothing at all - the entire common room smelt like an open waste drain/sewer

    The Shanti Hostel was amazing. Mario the owner is a cool man with you can talk with! He can suggest you the best things to do in the island the best restaurants and he can arrange tours, speedboats and everything you need for your stay! The position of the hostel is perfect just in the center of the island and really close to the walking street but in a little road wich make the hostel quiet during the night! Perfect for who travel alone probably the cheapest option in the island and worth the price in everything! Really recommended and i will come back!

    You get what you pay for

    The staff at the reception didn´t speak one word of English. She asked us for more money than on the booking and was complitely unable to explain that it was for the key deposit, not to mention explaining anything else. Lots of mosquitoes everywhere.
    The very central location right in the middle of everything is surely a plus. Good enough to sleep a night if travelling on a budget.
